As a For-All Shelter:
WE ARE driven by the well-being and safety of all animals and people in our community.
WE SERVE animals, the people who love them and our community. As advocates for the humane treatment of animals, we are a continuous resource for education, training, and veterinary services, and a responsible member of our great community.
WE ACCEPT everyone. We do not limit admission or refuse to take in any animal. At the same time, we strive to create a safe and supportive environment to help you do what is best for your family and your pet- completely without judgement.
WE DECIDE to humanely euthanize if the animal’s quality of life is suffering or it is essential for the greater good of the community. It is not a decision we take lightly.
